ICICI Pru Guaranteed Wealth Protector Review
ICICI Pru Guaranteed Wealth Protector is a unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) that offers the potential for high returns, by investing a portion of your money in equity.
The policy fund will be managed using the Guaranteed Wealth Protector Strategy. Under this strategy your monies will be allocated to an equity oriented fund and a debt oriented fund. At the start of the policy, a higher portion of your money will be invested in the equity oriented fund. Over time the allocation to the debt oriented fund will be increased in order to manage the guarantee. The allocation between the equity oriented fund and the debt oriented fund will be rebalanced periodically throughout the policy term. This regular reallocation will in turn determine the returns generated under the policy.
